BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA, October 12, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Once again, Tomorrow Foods has chosen ucrop.it, the agricultural technology company that transforms sustainable crop practices into simple and profitable Crop StoryTM, to trace production processes and increase scalability in supplying to the growing demand of consumers who choose quality, traceable, sustainable foods.

"Last year, we had our first experience with ucrop.it and we have had excellent results. We want to continue offering our clients and consumers certainty when it comes to agricultural practices of crops, with which our products are made, and guaranteeing environmental sustainability throughout the processes. ucrop.it also allows us to support product differentiation based on their origin," Agustín Belloso, Tomorrow Foods CEO, said.

In this new campaign, Tomorrow Foods will utilize ucrop.it’s platform to measure and record the carbon footprint, as well as register and trace lentil, chickpea, green and yellow pea crops grown in Argentina, used to produce plant-based solutions offered to the food industry. Argentine Farmers participating in the Tomorrow Foods program offered through ucrop.it will gain access to additional business benefits. Moreover, by promoting climate-smart agriculture, Farmers also reassert their commitment to environmental care by telling their Crop StoryTM.

"ucrop.it assists farmers in telling the story of their agricultural practices to boost digital connections with companies, such as Tomorrow Foods, which value and reward sustainability efforts. Our platform enables digital agreements that benefit all stakeholders: farmers and producers get favorable business conditions and additional monetary incentives, and companies marketing crops (and/or finished products made out of said raw material) can meet consumer expectations in a traceable manner. ucrop.it promotes sustainable farming in a scalable way throughout the agricultural value chain," Marcos Botta, ucrop.it Co-Founder and CIO (Chief Innovation Officer), stated.

For Tomorrow Foods, using tools such as ucrop.it and new technologies that highlight farming efforts to streamline processes pair with humanity's current main challenge: feeding a growing population while mitigating negative impacts of climate change. Along with the present paradigm change, the use of the ucrop.it platform adds to Tomorrow Foods efforts to collaborate with sustainable producers certified by the Argentine No-Till Farmers Association, through its ASC seal (Certified Sustainable Agriculture). This way, consumers can be assured that Tomorrow Foods products meet quality standards and are aligned with their sustainability values and expectations.
